How can I avoid a large truck's no zones?

From broken bones to lost lives and financial ruin, the outcome of a large truck accident may be devastating for everyone involved and their families. After all, due to the sheer size of semis and other large trucks, crashes are particularly hazardous. If you live in New London, Connecticut, or anywhere else in the country, it is very important to understand how to avoid the no zones of a large truck.

Recovering from a large truck accident

Over the course of 2014, more than 3,900 large trucks were involved in a fatal accident, according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Even if a large truck accident does not result in the loss of your life, you may be seriously injured and face a long road to recovery which includes other challenges. In New London, and cities across Connecticut, a truck wreck may also cause emotional and financial suffering (such as funeral expenses) for your family. At Beebe and O'Neil, we know all too well how devastating these collisions can be and the multitude of hardships they often bring.

Is texting while driving more dangerous than drinking?

When driving in Connecticut, you may frequently be tempted to check your text messages, especially during "slower" points in your trip such as at stoplights or in traffic. However, this seemingly simple action may be even more harmful than you think.

What happens if your hit-and-run driver is not found?

Connecticut laws say that leaving the scene of a hit-and-run accident is illegal. However, that unfortunately does not stop some people from fleeing the scene. Here at Beebe and O’Neil, we understand that you want the most compensation you can get, even if the responsible driver has fled.
